Peco Cross country No 5 Temple Newsam House

This was the  last Fixture in the Series and   9 Ladies and 7 men tackled this tough course on a cold windy day with lots of sapping mud  particularly  on the  long run in . Not one ounce  of effort was spared and everybody ran superbly. Plenty of food left after the  “do”  on Saturday was brought  by our foresighted Ladies and was so welcomed at the end. Well done All.

Next  up  –Peco  Relays 25/3/18,  excellent event last year. Local venue 2018.  Info out soon as I have it. Eric

Club Championship–Age graded results from Muddy boots 10k

The Muddy boots 10k had 19 runners involved for Club Championship points.   In the Senior Ladies  the ever improving Clare leads the field, Sue  has her nose in front in the Lady Vets. The Senior men was contested by only 2 members, James Ireland takes an early lead and in the Male Vets Ian  was 1st in the Category that could be most well fought this season.

The next 3 events in the Championship are  Liversedge half Marathon (now full unfortunately) 18/2/18.   Dentdale 14    10/3/18,   places still available, a scenic run in the Dales.  The Ben Campbell 10k 7/4/18 from The White Horse Car Park near Sutton Bank.  Details of events are on the Club Calendar, listed on the Club Championship page and on the Club notice board.

Peco Cross Country 17/18 – Race 5 @ TEMPLE NEWSAM (11/02/18)

A great venue for this end of season run.  Can we get a massive turn out for this run and climb the league?  

Men start at 11.00 with the Ladies at 11.10.

The Peco organiser has commented many runners are competing but not registering and therefore not paying. He will be checking after race 5 that the number of runners equates to the amount of fees paid, and threatening points deductions for offending Clubs.  

Finally the Peco Relays are to be held 25/03/18. This was a great event in 2017. It is teams of 3.The venue is not decided yet but most likely to  be in Leeds. Any member of the Club can participate you  DO NOT   need to have registered for Cross country to participate. When the venue is announced  I will publicise that and what the course is.  Last year it was multi terrain.

Thanks, Eric



This  race takes place adjacent to the  John Charles Stadium. It would be great to see loads of Striders out to drag ourselves up the Divisions.
